Comprehensive Plan FAQ's

What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan is a road map and guide for the community to follow as it considers decisions, both large and small, over the next 20 years. This plan will be Town and Country's vision for the future and strategic outline for getting there. The plan is a policy guide that provides a framework for making development and zoning decisions. The planning process includes an assessment of existing resources and issues, projections of future conditions and needs, and consideration of collective goals and objectives. The Comprehensive Plan is NOT a zoning ordinance, subdivision regulation, budget, capital improvement program or other regulatory document. It is meant to be the basis for the preparation of these documents.

How will the City of Town and Country use this Comprehensive Plan?
The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to enable City Officials and staff to better manage change and to inform residents and businesses about Town and Country's characteristics, trends and policies. The plan will guide municipal actions, including the regulation of future residential and commercial growth in Town and Country.
